__The quintessential story of young love with a tragic ending,_ La bohème_ is Puccini’s masterful vignette of bohemian life in the fabled Paris of the Romantic era. Puccini’s score is a veritable musical kaleidoscope of human emotion, from the tender first encounter between Rodolfo and Mimi, through the irreverent Christmas romp at the Café Momus, to the devastating scene of Mimi’s death in the abject poverty of Rodolfo’s apartment. A towering achievement by the master of the verismo style, La bohème is presented in an all-new West Bay Opera production.
